Sad times indeed in the Fisher household the passing of a legend that was Stan Fisher my grandfather, he was a true gent and a man mad about Chesterfield FC. Stans passing was after the history making night at Exeter where the Spireites clocked up their biggest away win of all time thrashing the Grecians by six goals to one. Exeter was one of my grandads favourite places where he could get his hands on a tinny oggy (thats devon for cornish pasty). Our family is part Cornish so to win at Exeter is indeed special and my second cousin still lives there in fact. Stan will be remembered at the Chesterfield Crematorium on Monday 10th November at 2.10pm it will be a sad day but it will be a great day if we beat Mansfield also on the Saturday previous.

The last couple of weeks have been surreal of a sort, thrashings of sides playing with ease and a certain style, whats happened? whats changed? its hard to single out things like this, maybe Alan Goodall positioning to left midfield, maybe its young Dan Gray's inclusion, maybe Lee Richardson knew all along what this side were capable of, I personally think that its because we have a balance now, a more defensive look sure but a lot more solid and a counter attacking style which suits our game. On Saturday we looked like a side that had played a boat load of matches in a short space of time and with driving wind and rain it was only ever going to be difficult so to come away with a point against a Bournemouth side desperate to gain positive points.

Another blog to come later in the week when the forthcoming political derby jamboree is underway!!

Forza Blues.
